If you think this only happens as you get older, think again!
It’s no laughing matter and it’s more common than you think!
This is called stress urinary incontinence. It’s not normal, but it is treatable.
Why does it happen?
In most cases, it is caused by week pelvic floor muscles.
Although it can happen in men, it is more prevalent in women. Up to 35% of women experience urine leakage while coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise
